Sometimes train wrecks happen. And sometimes they happen in front of lots of people. Which is exactly what just happened live on the air when I tried to report Google's earnings as they were released. So before getting to some analysis, let me just extend my apologies - as I just did on the air - to Google and the company's shareholders who simply deserved better. Bad math, quick on the trigger, inaccurate information. They all sound like good excuses, and they're true, but I'm the one reporting on the air, the buck stops with me, and the report was brutal. Don't think for a second that when mistakes like that happen, they come and go without some serious hand-wringing, head-shaking, and sweat.
This one will stick with me for a while.
